MUMBAI: Actor Shilpa Shetty’s husband and businessman Raj Kundra has been arrested in a case related to the alleged creation of pornographic films and publishing them through some apps on Monday night.
Raj Kundra has been remanded to police custody till July 23 by a Mumbai court. This comes after the crime branch made a case against him for making financial gains through this illegal business.
Speculations have been rife about Shetty’s involvement in the case ever since her husband was picked up for interrogation by the Mumbai Police and subsequently arrested. However, Mumbai police are yet to investigate Shilpa Shetty role in the case.
Claiming that they have not been able to any find any link between Shetty and the ongoing case yet, joint commissioner of police (Crime), Milind Bharambe said last evening that Mumbai police are investigating her involvement, if any, as they will now start requesting the survivors to come forward and contact the Crime Branch.
“We’ll take appropriate action,” Bharambe addressed the media on Tuesday over the arrest of Raj Kundra. He went on to say that “models were lured and promised roles” and later forced to act in pornographic films.
The 45-year-old businessman is accused of streaming pornographic content shot in Mumbai and surrounding areas through a mobile phone application called Hotshots app.
